Elizabeth and Mary: A Lesson in Joyful Waiting
By: Candace Chellew-Hodge
Advent is meant to be a time of "joyful waiting," a time to reflect on how this world, even in its meanness and cruelty, remains pregnant with new and awe-inspiring possibilities.

THE WHOSOEVER COMMUNITY
Be yourself. Be loved. Grow in faith.
In 2014, Whosoever will undergo a makeover and emerge with an even more vital role to play in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Christian community.
Since 1996, Whosoever has been the premiere online magazine for LGBT Christians and has provided years of deep and inspiring spiritual writing for our community. We have helped many LGBT people reconcile their faith and their spirituality, and our new Whosoever Community will focus on helping LGBT Christians go further in their faith.
We envision this new community as a safe place where LGBT Christians -- and their straight allies -- can come together to talk, pray, laugh and learn with one another. This community will be a place where everyone is invited to be yourself, be loved and grow in faith.
We will help LGBT people and their allies grow in faith by providing a content-rich experience including an interactive community where people can connect, podcasts and webinars for in-depth spiritual learning, and, as always, great articles from editor Candace Chellew-Hodge and other contributors.
Watch this space! The new Whosoever Community is coming in 2014. You don't want to miss your opportunity to be a member!
